MICROMO Announces the Next Generation of Motion Controllers - V3.0

The new FAULHABER MC3/MCS Controller Family

MICROMO launches the new MC3/MCS motion control family - an extensive and versatile basis

for the complete FAULHABER motion system. The new controllers are optimized for use with
FAULHABER motor technologies, offer electronics for simple operation with state-of-the-art
interfaces for multi-axis applications and provide a motion control system solution with the most
compact integration into industrial grade housing.
The FAULHABER Motion Controllers V3.0 are high performance, intelligent, networked drives
optimized for both OEM and automation applications. These high bandwidth controllers feature
100 microsecond sample time for velocity, position and current feedback.
• Industry standard network and control interfaces (Ethernet fieldbus technology, USB,
network communication protocols, CANopen and RS-232)
• Robust power stage with extensive transient suppression and thermal protection (up to 10 A
continuous and 30 A peak)
• Maximum performance and precision from all FAULHABER coreless DC motors, brushless DC motors and linear DC servo motors (and
high power match up with a wide range of other motors up to 300 W on the market)
• New FAULHABER Motion Manager 6 setup wizard provides simplified use of FAULHABER products
• Decentralized intelligence provides the ability to save program sequences (up to eight programs can be used over all interface
technologies…Ethernet fieldbus technology, USB, network communication protocols CANopen and RS-232).
• Users program these movements in BASIC with Motion Manager 6 in a single axis and create additional programs in network
Three device variants cover different application areas. The Motion Controller MC 5005 and MC 5010 with housing and plug connectors
are designed for use in switch cabinets or in devices. Motion control systems, such as servo motors with integrated Motion Controllers, are
already pre-configured and make it possible for use directly in the automation environment. An intelligent module system makes it possible
to integrate diverse brushless and brush-commutated DC servo motors into standardized housing. The MC 5004 motion controller is
designed for use in existing housing as an open plug-in card. An optionally available motherboard makes it easy to get started in multi-axis
applications. All three versions use the same technology basis and offer the same interface options as well as the same operating principle
and functionality.
Unrivaled Performance and Flexibility
• Multiple velocity and position feedback options (7 options).
• Digital I/O and analog inputs
• Controller/subordinate and stand- alone operations available
• Modular design with three performance classes
• Available as plug-in card version
• Optional motherboard as development environment
• With Ethernet fieldbus technology interface for multi-axis applications
• Extensive protective and diagnostic functions, status LEDs
• Expanded supply range with separate electronics supply
• Improved current measurement

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
